    Exclamation Asus T100TA Bricked after EasyFlash bios 307 upgrade

    just finished updating bios to 307 (from 225). Used flash file from Asus website, unzipped, moved it to an USB drive, started easy flash from bios advanced menu. Erasing and programming all went ok, it rebooted itself and now its bricked.
    The power led flashes 2-3 times when pressed power button and that's all.
    Any help would be highly appreciated (just please dont post "send it to asus service center")

    Really??? You used EasyFlash??? Why??? This forum is full of advice to ONLY use Winflash.

    Sorry your first post brings such bad news but there's no way to recover from that mistake and you'll need to exchange your T100.

    BTW welcome to these forums.

    Because I cant read all the posts on all forums before doing Bios update. Its there, it should work. If its not working then ASUS should publish some note on the bios drivers and download section on their website. morons.
    Anyway, thanks for the reply

    You're 100% correct... Asus is doing a very poor job at supporting the T100. There are far, far too many folks here and in other review venues that have had minor to brick issues with their devices. Many issues like you've had are sadly self induced due to 1) lack of info from Asus and 2) info from Asus being just plain wrong. Asus needs to correct this if they want to keep their name from falling.

    [7/7/14 update] I should clarify... in spite of how bad I made that sound there are many, many T100 users that manage to get it right. I don't know what to attribute that too but if the vast majority didn't get it right, I'd suspect the T100 would have garnered a huge negative reputation by now.

    Actually...having followed all the BIOS updates since the T100 was released...fact is that more than 1/2 of the reported issues with BIOS updates have been self-inflicted problems...failing to follow the right process with the right utility (Winflash).

    Granted...ASUS should indeed provide at least basic support for issues/problems...but when there are mistakes made by the user that cause lockups or bricking...that's not their fault nor responsibility IMHO...and I believe the warranty documentation reflects that.
